New year, same old goal.

So its a New Year but I have the same goal that I started with last year; to take better pictures.

I was thinking about taking part in a 365 day project. My thought process was that it would make me carry my camera and make me take photos of things I wouldn’t normally snap. 

Two things concerned me with this. One was that I would get bored and stop; that there’d be a danger that I’d lose interest if I had to do it every day. The second reason was that I don’t want to post images for the sake of posting a photo.

I do need a project to keep me thinking and challenge me to use my camera. So I joined a 52 week project on Flickr. There are not many in the group; just 32 I think. There are other groups running 52 week themes but hopefully with this being a small group I will get some useful feed back on the images I produce.

The 52 week project also gives me a bit of breathing space to think about the weeks topic and give me the best opportunity to produce the best image I can get within the timeframe. All while holding down a full time job with an unsocial shift pattern. 

This weeks subject was ‘Chocolate’. So here it is, my first image for my 2014 – 52 week project and my first post here for 2014. 



Thank you for taking time to look at my post and image.

I hope you had a good christmas and that 2014 brings you happiness.
